MM - I think you should get whichever tom gives you the most interesting babies....and maybe your DH will relent and let you keep more The self blue gives you more options if I remember right. It's very cool that R2elk has spare toms! Ralph - Penguin is still pretty cute - even though you keep threatening him with the oven I think your numbers have been pretty flexible.....how many birds do you have now?? Aurora - I agree, it would be impossible for me to keep it to 3 as well. Turkey math is kicking in over here....My new bourbon girl should be ready for pick up on Sunday! We'll put her in one of the tractors where she can see the others while we go through a quarentine period. Hoping that being able to see the others will help her not be too lonely while we make sure that she's healthy. We had lots of frost this morning - which is cold for here. But it's been sunny, annd is a wonderful change from our customary rain. Maybe if it's a little cold here this week, I'll be better acclimated for when I go north next week lol. We probably need to stack another cord of wood one day soon too. Was very excited - our new generator arrived this week and is sitting in the back of the truck. NOW we can have another stupid wind storm!
